 Hi Vincent,

 Thanx for the feedback, I will spend some time on trying this out, its new
 for me but of interest definately!
 Another issue with the rss feed, is there a possibility to show this in a
 panel? Since then my users can just move their heads to the left and see the
 panel getting updated with the feed, and dont need to go to a page to do so.
 Is this possible at all?
 Sure, just put the rss macro in a panel…


 Would be a nice feature, if its not possible yet, I know, I go and make Jira
 issues :-)

 Hi all,

 While gathering information on the simplify my wiki subject, I stumbled
 the RSS makro and tried it out, works great.
 But is there a way to have the RSS Links that the RSS Makro displays
 open in
 a new window?

 I know there are discussions on the sensibility of opening links in a
 window, but in this project I will have to do so.

 I tried putting rel=blank in somewhere, but nothing worked.
 I tried putting a java class objekt in, but I guess since the rss feed
 is in
 a makro, this did not work either.

 Is it possible, and if yes, how?
 Right now this feature is not part of the RSS macro. It could be
 interesting to add it though.
 Now we could imagine some workaround but they require a bit of work.
 * create a wiki macro with the same name rss
 * In the content of this wiki macro, use Groovy to lookup the original
 rss macro, execute it, then get its XDOM and find all LinkBlocks, then add
 rel=blank in those blocks.
 It's only about 6-7 lines of groovy script in total but it may be easy or
 hard depending on your current knowledge of xwiki components/rendering.

 Actually a slightly cleaner version is simply to write a Transformation
 (since this is what it's for! :)). So you don't need to overwrite the wiki
 macro. All you need is to add a new Transformation.


 PS to self: we really need to add wiki components since adding a
 transformation is a nice use case for it.

 Otherwise you could create a jira issue to request this feature.

Hi Wouter,

Vincent's solution is the most correct one from the Java development and 
best practice point of view. But for some less experienced developers it 
might be a bit difficult imho. So I can think of a way to work around 
this (i.e. do a quick dirty fix).
An easier solution, though not the most elegant one, would be to write a 
piece of Javascript code to be executed on page load. It should search 
fpr links in the RSS block(s) and write the rel or target attribute 
to _blank. The only problem is that you should include that script via 
xwiki.jsx.use(...)  on each page you want this feature on.

The Javascript could look something like this:

document.observe(xwiki:dom:loaded) {
   var rssLinks = $$('.rssitemtitle a'); //the css selector for links in the 
'div's generated by the {{rss}} macro.
 link.writeAttribute('target', '_blank');

I hope it helps. Cheers!
